Sugar Free Candied Pecans

These Sugar Free Candied Pecans are the perfect keto friendly snack for those of us with a sweet tooth but trying to cut down on the sugar! To stay on track when everyone else is enjoying their carb loaded desserts and treats, I reach for my stash of sugar-free goodies or I might whip up a batch of sugar-free ice cream.  (That ice cream <and this ice cream maker> is a lifesaver, lol.  At some point, I’ll share my sugar-free ice cream version with you.  (It needs to be “perfected” first.  It’s made with eggs, lite coconut milk, almond milk and a few other ingredients.  Sometimes it turns out perfectly, other times it’s kind of icy- probably because I just eyeball my ingredients instead of precise measurements.

To make these pecans, I use Swerve.  (Swerve is a sugar substitute that is a mix of erythritol and oligosaccharides.  This combination works well in baking and will also caramelize.)  I don’t know if other sugar substitutes will caramelize, as Swerve is the only one I’ve tried in this recipe.
